  • Deconstructing Corporate Compliance & Ethics for Single Facilities and Small Regional Chains

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 03/11/2013

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates that all nursing facilities must have a compliance program by March 23, 2013. While large companies have had compliance programs for many years, smaller chains and single homes may not have yet established a formal plan. Given the fact that compliance is a concept well known and well-practiced in most nursing facilities, adoption of a "compliance program" should not be an overwhelming task. Rather, it is a matter of identifying what aspects of the program are already largely in place and which aspects need to be further developed and then designed into a program that makes sense for your organization.

  • Taking Part B Therapy Beyond the $3,700 Threshold – What You Need to Know About the New Manual Medical Review Process

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 09/25/2012

    An AHCA/NASL sponsored event.

    An AHCA/NASL sponsored event

    The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 extended the therapy cap exceptions process until December 31, 2012. The law also placed a $3,700 limit on the amount of therapy that could be provided without pre-authorization. Starting on October 1, providers must seek pre-authorization for patients needing therapy over and above the $3,700 threshold. Around Labor Day, CMS began to detail how the agency will implement this new policy, which is being phased in from October 1 to December 1, 2012.



    Learning Objectives

    1. Understand the components of the new manual medical review process CMS requires under the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012.
    2. Gain insight about the specific patient information and documentation MACs will require when providers submit pre-authorization requests that are needed for Medicare reimbursement for additional therapy for those patients near the $3,700 threshold.
    3. Understand the steps that providers will need to take when requesting pre-authorization.
    4. Obtain links to all CMS issued guidance and documents regarding this new policy
